TIMMINS, ON, June 12, 2015 (Timmins Daily Press) -Greenpeace is fighting back after members of North Eastern Ontario Municipal Association (NEOMA) likened the environmentalist group to "eco-terrorism."

During a press conference this week, the mayors of NEOMA member communities, including Timmins' Steve Black, announced that they were banding together to fight environmental groups such as Greenpeace, which they believe are making it impossible to start new forestry products in the region.

Greenpeace has responded by denying any claims they are calling for a boycott of companies harvesting in the Boreal Forest.
